Suresh Joshi is a PhD candidate at Deakin University based at Alfred Deakin Research Institute (ADRI), Geelong Waterfront Campus. His research aims to understand the trajectories in immigrant's health behaviour in Australia. Specifically, the objectives of this research are to determine the longitudinal changes in tobacco smoking, physical activity and alcohol consumption behaviours of foreign-born people as compared to native-born people over time. Longitudinal research evidence on the relationship between migration and health are limited in Australia. In this study, he will be utilising multiple waves of longitudinal data from the Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey. Advanced epidemiological techniques will be applied to determine the trajectories in health behaviours of immigrants relative to native-born Australians.
Before joining Deakin University, he has obtained MSc in Public Health Research from the University of Aberdeen, UK and undergraduate degree in Public Health from Nepal.
